MADRID (SPAIN) – 15 APRIL 2020 - The WKF Youth Camp and the Karate 1-Youth League which were programmed to be held in Porec (Croatia) from June 29 to July 5 have been postponed. The decision to suspend both events is taken after thorough deliberation in accordance with the local organisers and the local authorities as the pandemic of Covid-19 continues spreading worldwide.
While the WKF has been constantly monitoring the global situation caused by the coronavirus outbreak, the current progress of the pandemic requires postponing the two events. The WKF Youth Camp was scheduled to be held in Porec (Croatia) from June 29 to July 2. The Karate 1-Youth League Porec was expected to take place in the idyllic city of the Croatian coast from July 3 to 5.
Karate’s international governing body will continue to observe the overall developments of the outbreak; the situation will be re-evaluated to consider the rescheduling of the event in 2021.
One of the most anticipated events of the year, the WKF Youth Camp gathers thousands of young Karate athletes from all over the world. Meanwhile, the Karate 1-Youth League Porec was the second event of the season of the series of international competitions for youngsters. The first event of the year of the Karate 1-Youth League was originally scheduled to be held in Limassol (Cyprus) but was also cancelled due to coronavirus.
